First Barong

side note: I won't be able to join Friday's Feast today but to my FF co-participants, I'll see you next week. Happy Friday!

Jules and I got Yohan's barong from the tailor last Wednesday. We were so excited to try it out on Yohan. It's a perfect fit!

Yohan will wear this barong this Saturday for the wedding of Ryan and Chris (Jules' cousin). Yohan is the bible bearer and it will be his first time to walk the aisle with the rest of the wedding entourage.

A barong Tagalog (or simply barong) is an embroidered formal
garment of the Philippines. It is very lightweight and worn untucked, similar to
a coat/dress shirt. It is a common wedding and formal attire for Filipino men.
The term "Barong Tagalog" literally means "Tagalog dress" (i.e., baro ng Tagalog
or dress of the Tagalog) in the Filipino language.
